    Default 12 Year Old Dakota Fanning appearing nude in film

    Dakota Fanning Ventures Into Dark Territory, Scares Away the Money

    Kid phenom Dakota Fanning is going the way of Brooke Shields and Jodie Foster and then some as she tackles a dicey, but potentially award-worthy role in which she endures a sexual assault and appears naked in several scenes.

    The 12-year-old thespian is starring in "Hounddog," a dark story, as Lloyd Grove puts it, of "abuse, violence and Elvis Presley adulation in the rural South," in which her character gets raped in an explicit scene and appears nude or wearing only undergarments in others. Fanning's mom and agent apparently see the film as Oscar material for Dakota, but potential investors apparently shied away from its creepy material. Production shut down briefly, but filming will wrap tomorrow in North Carolina.

    "It's not just the rape scene," says Fanning agent Cindy Osbrink. "The whole story is challenging Dakota as an actress...I've seen the dailies, and in every scene she gets better and better."

    How in the hell is this right? Does she have to be nude to 'get better and better'?

    i think that because children being raped actually does happen, maybe a piece like this would touch them. i know it's not usually acceptable to have a child naked on screen, this at least has a message. it sounds like it's not gratuitous porn. on the other hand though, as soon as she does this, it's out there for child molesters to oggle and enjoy. hard call.

    ultimately, i feel like they could do the rape scenes with maybe her clothes beginning to be torn off or something so that she didn't have to bare it all.

    All for the sake of a fucking award? This borders on child prostitution IMO and should not be allowed. How can her MOTHER think this is a good idea? The agent thinks this challenges her as an actress? Surely there are other roles out there where she can be challenged and clothed both.
    How is this not child endangerment/exploitation when there is a mother who left her son at home with 2 pit bulls (see news section) and is being tried for his death-facing 10 years-how is DF's mother not liable for letting her kid be naked on film????????????

    Tell THAT to the judge! LOL. It's wrong wrong wrong. If a parent took a picture of their 12 year old, nude.....Don't doubt that Protective Services would be one step away. This is just not acceptable. I feel that this is absolutely sick.....remember the film where Nicole Kidman kisses the kid? It's right up there with that....SICK.

    Personally I feel this is crossing the line. There are so many ways to portray the violence of rape without total nudity. I don't care for nudity in most the films that have it anyway. The scenes in Monster's Ball were not necessary to show the raw passionate sex between Billy Bob and Halle. To have a 12 year old naked is really not necessary. This child is not even making her own choice to be naked, it is being made for her. Wonder how she will feel about that once she becomes an adult.

    ^^It would be hard enough to watch a rape scene that showed an adult victim. I agree, there are ways for you to let the audience know what is happening without the explicit scenes. I think this is wrong, wrong, wrong.

    You sometimes hear adult actresses talk about the difficulty of rape scenes, and how it's often very emotionally upsetting for them. Yes, it's acting, but there is a struggle, and the female is being overpowered. I can't help but think that Dakota is going to be victimized in shooting this scene PERIOD, even without the nudity.

    There is no excuse for this. None. The so-called artistic merit does not justify the cost. This child is being exploited for money.

    This is very disturbing. The child molesting pervs are going to be lined up the night before the movie premiere. How can this little girl do this to herself? I have no respect for her now. She's probably just as money/fame hungry as her crazy mother. I can see her divorcing her parents in 5 years or doing an E special on how she was exploited by her mother as a child. Of course all this will be after the public has forgotten about her and she's needing the media attention.

    This is disgusting. I cannot believe her parents are allowing her to take this role knowing what it involves. Screw awards, this girl and her parents are throwing her childhood away.

    Brooke Sheilds seemed to survive doing Pretty Baby at the same age. There was plenty of nudity in that. But no rape scenes.

    As I recall, Brooke Shield's also had an legendarily alcoholic stage mother in Terri Shields. From what I understand, her mom basically cracked a whip over her to act in that movie. For all outward appearances, Brooke seems normal enough now, but like you said, there weren't any violent rape scenes, either.
